to have a chance to publicly say thank you because i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of states we had. >> president obama asked me to be secretary of state and i said yes and why did he ask me and why did i say, yes? because we both love our country. >> chris: president obama and hillary clinton in an unusual joint interview as she ends four years as secretary of state. apparently folks the president calls 60 minutes and says i would like to do an interview with hillary clinton. what makes this so unusual is in his four years as president the only time he sat down with another person for an interview mr. obama is with mrs. obama. so jeff, one, what do you make of it. will the chattering class here in washington think this is a kind of mini endorsement of hillary for 2016 and how unhappy to do you think joe biden will be tonight when 60 minutes goes on the air. >> he was probably sort of listening in. i'm not sure it is any more than just i think this a good for the president her approval rating is very high among women and among others. why not sort of sit

cactus league spring training rates. >> president barack obama: i want to have a chance to publicly say thank you. because, i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of states we have had. >> president obama asked me to be secretary of state and i said yes, and why did he ask me and why did i say yes? because we both love our country. >> chris: president clinton and hillary clinton, in an unusual joint interview as she ends four years as secretary of state. we're back with the panel, apparently the president called "60 minutes" and said i'd like to do an interview with hillary clinton. now, what makes it so unusual, is that in his four years as president, the only time he sat down with another person, for an interview, mr. obama, was with mrs. obama, not with the vice president, not with any secretary, not with anybody else, and with mrs. obama, so, jeff, one, what do you make of it? will the chattering class here in washington think this is a kind of mini-endorsement of hillary for 2016 and how unhappy will joe biden be at 7 o'clock when "60 minutes" goes on the air.

the can down the road. is this proverbial constant delay, delay, delay until they can get anything together? >> i don't blame president obama for all of this. i do think he inherit the a very polarized nation. richard nixon and ronald reagan won re-election with 48 and 49 states. obama squeaked out a victory here. one thing obama has to do, even if it's not his fault, he has to lead the country. the nation is in an interesting position, where the right has turned very right and the red has turned very red and the blue is very blue. but on issues like immigration and the budget, i think there is a chance to move forward and i think the democrats on the hill will urge the president to work in a more bipartisan fashion, because if you look at the senate races in 2014, there is a lot of democratic senator who is have to get re-elected in swing or red states. so i think political reality is this -- they have to come together to get some things done or both sides will fail and be criticized. >> eric: specifically, how does he find his way out of this one? speaker baner says he -- speaker
